About Me

I am a third year PhD candidate in MIT's Operations Research Center. I am co-advised by Retsef Levi and Georgia Perakis, and supported by the NSF Graduate Research Fellowship. I received a B.S. in Math, B.S. in Statistics, and M.A. in Math from the Pennsylvania State University, where I was advised by Christopher Griffin.

Before coming to MIT, I spent a year working at Booz Allen Hamilton as a data scientist. I have also worked briefly at Bates White and in the Risk and Decision Science Team of the Environmental Laboratory, U.S. Army Engineer Research and Development Center.

Research Interests

Generally, I am interested in strategy for multi-agent interaction and in particular settings with a central planner. My current research is on supply chain intervention strategies, specifically on how to create better access to, and consumption of, fresh local food.
